A preview of the image I made for top designer Marcel Wanders' Libelle magazine issue on the 'hero' theme. This is a rough I did and like. The final will be slightly more stylish. The child as the hero.

A lot of new DJ shots...

The 2009 edition of ADE was a real treat for a portrait photographer like me. I had my studio set up backstage, and shot a heap of new DJ material. Here is my man Cablejuice, one of the leading dj/ producers in the lowlands.

Echoes on the web...

Every now and then one encounters oneself somewhere on the web. Like on the pages of the United Recordings record company. I shot some record sleeves for them and Supperclub. My portrait was shot by Koos Breukel, a famous Dutch photographer. Here's the link:

The Dalai Lama in Amsterdam.

Today I went out to meet the Dalai Lama for a portrait. Alas this appeared to be a goal set a bit high. Security and schedule were tight, to say the least. This is what I could do, and at least he waved at me once.

This is Romy. Lady, model, singer, voice, producer... One of the shots for the Autotrack campaign I shot for DDB (Hi Yuka! Big X!)

Silver ADCN award for the Socialist Party commercial 'Mieke'.

Yesterday the Art Directors Club awarded the Socialist Party commercial with a silver award. It can be seen here: .. I'd like to thank Thomas and Nikki from Thonik for their great script, Jan Marijnissen and Agnes Kant of the SP for their basic idea and their trust, and above all the brave actress Mieke, who just turned 90 years of age. Also thanks to my production company Hazazah, and everybody who worked with me on the project. Special thanks to my good friend Ernst Reijseger for his beautiful music. Thank you all, and I am really happy that next to the gold award we recently won at the public awards, we are now also awarded by our fellow creatives. Photo's by Isabella Roosendaal.

Ik Lode Schaeffer

The first in a series of cover shot's I'll be doing for the new magazine FONK. This guy here is my old friend Lode Schaeffer, on one of his Harleys. For those not from around here: the shot obviously is a spoof on the cover of Jan Cremer's first novel 'Ik Jan Cremer'.

Robert Rubinstein for Proud magazine.

Although born in Brooklyn, New York, Robert Rubinstein is a longtime resident of The Netherlands. In 1999 he founded a company to introduce the then-radical concept of sustainable investing. The concept behind this company was the introduction of TBLI –Triple Bottom Line Investing. It seeks to reeducate the financial world. TBLI's concept: a truly sound investment is one that provides not just financial rewards, but social and environmental ones too.


SugaCane, aka Hurricane, aka Cane. He got his name in a period when he was a salesman in chemicals and an entrepreneur in the dating business. This, and also his rather impressive appearance, gave him a solid reputation in the Dutch hip hop scene.

Kees de jongen (Kees the boy).

This is Kees Kroot, a man famous for his ears, with which he makes his great sound-designs and music scores.
Famous, and well-to-do too, since he is a major BUMA member. Visit his still slightly dull website at now, or his exiting and highly creative new website soon, because Maarten from is working on it as we speak.
I was shooting him for this, in different stylings, but this was his actual outfit when he walked into my studio.
